Biscuit fever has taken over Metro Manila. From DIY cookies to treats like grandma used to make, here’s where to go to get the sweetest bites.
Cookies By The Bucket
“The first time I tried Cookies by the Bucket, I knew they were going to be a favorite. Their offerings remind me of the chocolate chip cookies that my grandmother made when I was a kid. Their cookies are best enjoyed when they’re freshly baked and warm and dipped in fresh milk.” — Ponch Canoy (IG: @ponchcan)
Manila’s first craft-your-own-cookie bar, Scout’s Honor, lets you customize everything from the base dough to the mix-ins. Prefer to leave things to the experts? Then order yummy standard flavors like the ultimate chocolate chip, or opt for the milk and cookies bucket, with 12 pieces of chocolate chip and chunk or double chocolate fudge cookies and 500ml of vanilla milk.
Cookie Bar Manila
This commissary in Pasig is best known for its cookie cups (cookies baked in cupcake tins), cookie cakes (cookies baked in a cake pan) and cookie shots (cookies shaped like shot glasses that are filled with milk). Drop by their kitchen or have your orders delivered to your doorstep.
“My family and I get our cookie fixes at this Power Plant Mall spot. They’re as good as they look — huge, chunky cookies with gooey fillings that you can dunk in milk or enjoy plain. My favorite is the 60% South Cotabato dark chocolate.” — Karen Limfueco (IG: @abagofgoodies)
The famous UK bakeshop chain finally opened in the Philippines this year. The takeout counter in Podium Mall offers 14 flavors made with quality ingredients — the milk chocolate chunk is a good bet. For something different, try the orange and milk chocolate cookie.
